All forms of art and creativity have always been my preferred means of expression and communication. That said, what I believe I have learned is no secret really. It is common sense and the guiding vision that knowledge and kindness are the pathways away from fear, that all living things are irrefutably interconnected and that greed is not sustainable. Also, that I am what I do and that what I do defines my journey.

 

Over the years, I have become a poet. These are the principle foundations from where I have chosen align myself while peacefully processing adversity with my actions and writings. In service we find purpose, community and healing. In joy we find ourselves.

Part of my vision for this book is to use it as a teaching tool for children of all ages to learn multiple languages. It is now in English and Spanish. Eventually, it will also be in Audible in multiple languages.

Our Lady Gaia

Our Lady Gaia

 

The Redwood, the Birch,

the Dogwood and the Olive,

and all of the rest
of the Standing Nations...

 

All bowed to her for she bowed to them

and they were all reborn as Love
for that is what they gave.

 

The Eagle, the Condor,

the Raven and the Hawk,

and all of the rest
of the Winged Nations...

 

All bowed to her for she bowed to them

and they were all reborn as Love
for that is what they gave.

 

The Daffodil, the Rhododendron,

the Orchid and the Rose,
and all of the rest
of the Flower Nations...

 

All bowed to her for she bowed to them

and they were all reborn as Love
for that is what they gave.

 

The Bear, the Deer,

the Coyote and the Buffalo,

and all of the rest
of the Four-legged Nations...

 

All bowed to her for she bowed to them

and they were all reborn as Love
for that is what they gave.

 

The Salmon, the Dolphin,

the Whale and the Blue Fin,

and all of the rest
of the Swimmer Nations...

 

All bowed to her for she bowed to them

and they were all reborn as Love
for that is what they gave.

 

The Iguana, the Snake,
the Spider and the Scorpion,

and all of the rest
of the Creepy Crawler Nations.

 

All bowed to her for she bowed to them

and they were all reborn as Love
for that is what they gave.

 

And the Prairie-Dog, the Rabbit,

the Mole and the Worm,
and all of the rest
of the Underworld Nations...

 

All bowed to her for she bowed to them

and they were all reborn as Love
for that is what they gave.

 

The Sand, the Dirt and the Stone,

the Water and the Ether,

the Spark, the Fire and the Stars,

the Wind and the Spirit,

and all of the rest of Creation…

 

All bowed to her for she bowed to them

and they were all reborn as Love
for that is what they gave.
